Two identical young women who live in different countries, Weronika in Poland and Véronique in France share a special metaphysical bond. They don’t know each other, but their lives are profoundly connected and follow as well an eerily similar course. The girls are like doubles: physically and mentally similar, both blessed with musical talent. And there are many other parallels in their lives as well; they both have the same serious health problem. The collapse of Weronica during a concert in Kraków radically affects Véronique’s life.

The film won the FIPRESCI Prize at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival for Krzysztof Kieslowski, and the Best Actress Award for Irène Jacob. It was also nominated for the Golden Globe.
